In 2019, The U.S. Center for SafeSport and the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee instituted changes for National Governing Bodies, like USA Climbing. To ensure we are holding athlete safety to the highest standards, we are required to provide SafeSport training and background screening to additional membership categories and stakeholder groups within the organization.

 Below you will find a short description and the requirements for each membership.
